I’ve watched a few GoPro HERO4 Session reviews and I’d say this is definitely one of the best ones.
It comes to us from Brent Rose who is a Technical Writer over at WIRED.
It’s worth it to watch the video as it covers the shape, image quality and sound quality in a number of different situations. The key takeaways are:
- The HERO4 Session’s shape is amazing in the sense that it takes up a small footprint (1.5 inches cubed!).
- The video quality of the Session takes a step back compared to the HERO4 Silver.
- If you have a pet mouse and want to capture epic GoPro footage from his point of view, this is the camera for you.
The bottom line is you’re paying a premium for the small form factor so unless you absolutely need to have the smallest camera, I have to side with Brent’s recommendation of going with the HERO4 Silver.
Considering the decrease in video quality compared to the equally-priced HERO4 Silver, I would certainly like to see a lower price tag. Size is important but video quality is more important.
With all of that said, my opinion may change after I get my hands on my own Session.
